ε-poly-L-lysine (ePL) is a biopolymer that has potential uses in a variety of fields including medicine, bioelectronics, and the food industry (as a food preservative). The goal of this project was to obtained ePL producing bacteria or fungi from soils suspected to be polluted by heavy metals, including chromates. The project concentrated on testing all the soil samples collected for chromium and testing the specificity of the method of Itzhaki (a method to measure concentrations of ePL).
